Silicone addresses structural challenges in world-class Chinese landmark

National Centre for the Performing Arts, Beijing, ChinaChina’s National Centre for the Performing Arts in Beijing is a complex architectural marvel. Constructed of glass and titanium, the Centre spans nearly 150,000 square meters and sits in the middle of an artificial lake. The building’s façade is a shimmering curved glass curtain wall.

Constructing a building of this scale, along with sealing and insulating large amounts of curved glass, creates significant structural challenges for long-term reliability and sustainability. To meet those challenges, the designers chose silicone insulating glass and structural sealants.

Silicone sealants have demonstrated their long-term performance capabilities in buildings that are now more than 20 years old. To learn more about silicone’s proven performance, read 20 years of silicone structural glazing success (PDF size 1.16 MB).
